What’s new…

Majda's big parallel paper submitted

Majda’s first paper addressing genomic basis of parallelism on BioRXiv! We found out that the degree of gene reuse scales with divergence with divergence between the parallel lineages in alpine crucifers, mostly due to decreasing probability of allele sharing. Nice collaboration between our group (Majda, Jakub and Veronika involved),Tanja Slotte’s (Stockholm) and Graham Coop’s labs (UC Davis)!

Pizza lunches as webinars

Thanks to Clement’s effort our pizza lunches continue, turned into virtual no-pizza webinars! Nelida presented her past PhD work. Thanks all Ecolgen, Brassiploidy and LabAlliance people for taking part!

Parallel presentation

Majda B gave a presentation on her nearly finished project about predictability of parallel genome evolution at the Vienna evolutionary meeting.

New postdoc joined our team! filip.kolar Tue, 02/25/2020 - 22:49

Nélida Padilla Garcia joined our and Brassiploidy groups within a postdoc project focused on biosystematics and population genomics of Arabidopsis arenosa and Cardamine amara polyploid complexes. Nélida did her PhD studies in plant evolution at University of Salamanca and Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris. Welcome Nélida!

New PhD and postdoc opportunities in polyploid evolution filip.kolar Thu, 02/13/2020 - 15:22

We are happy to announce new PhD student and Postdoc opportunities related with the new ERC project DOUBLE ADAPT and a PhD student position in polyploid speciation. Review of applications will begin on 28.2.2020 (PhD positions) and 15.3.2020  (postdoc). 

New preprint online now morgane Thu, 02/06/2020 - 15:31

Preprint about process-level convergence in adaptation to whole genome duplication between C. amara and A. arenosa. Check it here.

Publication out from Emma's previous PhD work morgane Thu, 12/19/2019 - 11:28

Emma’s article on designing sex-linked markers for the dioecious coco de mer palm (Lodoicea maldivica) has been published.

Two new grants from the Czech Science Foundation (GAČR) filip.kolar Fri, 11/29/2019 - 10:44

Two new projects will start in 2020. The first is focused on genomic and experimental inquiry of reproductive barriers involved in polyploid speciation, the second addresses phylogenomics of species radiation in tropical alpine environments (in collaboration with Rosi Schmickl).

New paper on A. halleri taxonomy and phylogeography morgane Thu, 11/21/2019 - 13:27

A new taxonomic reassessment of the A. halleri group is out now.

Paper on interspecific introgression in Arabidopsis is out! morgane Thu, 11/21/2019 - 13:15

A new paper showing bidirectional gene flow in meiosis adaptation between A. lyrata and A. arenosa has been published in Nature Communications. A nice collaboration between Majda, Rosi (Lab Allience, Charles Uni) and Levi Yant’s group (Uni Nottingham).
